Abstract

This paper presents a Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) dynamic performance analysis under various operating conditions. Thus, an SRM 8/6 was designed and built and a new bench was built to drive it, aiming to study the drive techniques and generated voltage control techniques for use in small wind turbine generators. The driving was done through a data acquisition and processing system of high performance and low cost (DSP / FPGA). The experimental results are shown and discussed.
